Modeh Ani - Miss Emily Celebrates

Rm 2048 Emily Aronoff Teck
This experiential workshop will model songs and
strategies to engage young children with the
Shacharit liturgy and themes inspired by that liturgy.
Participants will be asked to discover their inner
child as we pray, sing, dance, move and learn
together. The focus of the workshop will be
employing participants with transferable skills so
that they can implement these musical, prayerful
experiences with children in classroom or morning
"Tot Shabbat" settings.
Singin’ Circletime Shacharit will expose young
children to the concepts and ideas that are
foundational to an understanding of a Jewish prayer
service. A planned, guided set of experiences
organized around listening, singing, moving,
breathing and learning with the following tunes that
will transmit knowledge of Judaism to the student
through music. This experience is a piece of a
foundation for young children or a supplement to
other prayer experiences for older community

Oh My God- Your work is great
These tents, of Jacob’s They are first rate
Oh My God, Awesome is your space
Please bless me when I’m in this place
A mean King named Balak sent Balaam,
his not nice friend
To say mean things to Jewish people,
he wanted us to end
With a Donkey as a helper,
he didn’t do what the King said
When Balaam opened up his mouth,
he made a blessing instead
With God’s help the Jewish people
have stayed alive and strong
We love God and God’s work,
we praise God in this song
We remember this story,
when we gather to pray
We sing a prayer in Hebrew,
this is what we say
Ma tovu ohalekha Ya'akov, mishk'notekha Yisrael

I Like God/Ashrey
I like God and God Likes me, We share a life so happily
We live together, Day by day, When I’m with God I know its all OK
And that’s why we say
Ashrey Yoshevetecha
Od ya halelucha sela
Good and Mighty, Just and true
That why I’m singing Halelu
I like God and God likes me, From my lips I praise daily
When I rise and when I lay, gratefully I always pray
And that why we say
I like God and God Likes me, Gives us opportunity
To pick the role we want to play as we fix the world without delay
And that why we say
